Our street workers travel all over Hochelaga-Maisonneuve in order to meet people in their own environment. Our street work takes places in several public as well as private Hochelaga-Maisonneuve locations, such as parks, private homes, businesses and community organizations. Our street workers establish relationships on a voluntary basis.
Trust, confidentiality, respect for people’s individual pace and an egalitarian relationship are the cornerstones of the relationship between street workers and individuals. On top of providing information and guidance, they also offer accompaniment services to direct individuals towards appropriate resources and provide a follow-up outside of the formal framework.
